N. Y., Oct. IS*.— • Senator David Beni»3t Hill sounded tho key noto of his campaign for governor Thursday bight in this city and with his address opened a partisan battle that promises to be historical ia the annals of state politics. The Alhnmbra rink, where Democrats and Republicans alike have sounded the tocsin of political battle, was the scene of the opening note of warfare. The Brat political meeting that over named Senator Hill for an office assembled nn- der this roof. Seine 3, UUU people heard Senator Hill speak and half as many more were unable to gain admittance. The American flag was very much in evidence as a decoration and a good many of the fair sex lent their presence to the occasion. There was an uproar of applause and great enthusiasm as Senator Hill, dressed in a plain frock coat and black tie, stepped upon the platform, He was the usual cool, impassive i statesman and to the storm of applause mad* but a alight inclination of his head. When the 'cheers and applause had subsided and the vast audience had again seated Itself, County Chairman Yale stepped to • the front of the platform and said he had been authorized by the committee to • name as chairman Hon. Frederick J. fctowrey, who introduced Senator Hill. ; •rreqnently Interrupted With Applause; When his name was mentioned, the •Senator stepped to the from* and stood With his hand OB the table facing his • andience. For some minutes he waited while the audience cheered and then • cheered again, and then ht began his remarks. He was listened to with great attention, but was frequently interrupted With most vociferous applause. He •poke in a clear, concise and convincing way and held his audience until the lost word. His allusions to Seymour, Cleveland, Flower sad the A. P. A. issue caused tnmnltous applause. "I know of no more appropriate place In which td open the present campaign than before the united Democracy of Onandago county. [A~n1un<!e.] It is with pleasure that I recall my first nomination for a state office, which occurred In the city of Syracuse, and that during all my political career the Democracy of this city have been among my most aarnest supporters from the time of my candidacy for the lieutenant governorship in ICS'j through all the vicissitudes of politics up to this hour, and while many of you have had other preferences and have frankly expressed them, which you bad a perfect right to do, I am gratified to soy your opposition has always been manly and honorable, and Within party lines. Kulo(li» President Cleveland. "I am also reminded that this county Wan the birthplace of that distinguished and sterling Democrat and statesman, Horatio Seymour from whose lips I first learned the lessons of true Democracy and that it was also the boyhood home for years of the present Democratic prps- Ident of the United States, Grover Cleveland, where struggling with heavy poverty he u< quired 'hos-i habits and principles of economy which hnvo always been the distinguishiuK features of his official administrations iu state and nation;' and recollecting all those circumstances, .it waa dfi'iiH'd most fitting tho lir<t words in behulf of Democrat!-: prim-ip'-s -liould be utti'rod upon tun soil roudmvd inter•sting by such pleasant memories. "I propose to conduct a creditable canvass in behalf of uiy party which honored we with it« leadership, wliat-- ever tho rosult, I shall bo able to retain at least my own self respect «nd I ho pit as well the personal respect of my ad- vorsuriea KludllMt Veelln*; For Morton. "For the distinguished and venerable gentleman whom the Republican party has selected us my opponent in this campaign, or more accurately npeiikliiy, tho gentleman whom Mr, Plittt s«lectwl and whose selection the convontlou subsequently ratified, I have nothing but the kindliest feelings and the most profound personal respect. I acknowledge bis many excellent qualities and am indebted to uim for many courtesies while he was presiding otlicer of the senate, Of genial disposition, of conceded business abilfty aud of lurge means, he naturally attracts friends and his candidacy for auy position which be may booonitti most formidable and dangerous. "Born in the state of Vermont, prohibition Vermont, let me observe, the •tato whoso Republicanism Is most extreme aud ill-liberal in its character, he afterwards removed to New Hampshire, and it is a peculiar and significant fact, not without special interest in this campaign, that all the while Mr. Morton lived in New Hampshire and until as late as the ye»r 1H07, the constitution of that state was uioet prescriptive in it» torus »ud actually prohibited any penum not of the Pfotaitttut religion from buiug governor or a member of either house of the legislature aud its bill of righto then provided and still provides that only Protestant teachers of piety, religion and morality may be maintained at public, •xpeus* of the rotnvotivo towns of the •tato.

It i« the toic* of Levl, but the hr.Mite of Thomas. The people of the :!»te, especially thoughtful Republicans, hare not forgot»ten the fact that for every office which Mr. Morton has aspired to he has been pushed forward by Mr. Platt. When the Republicans of the state decided to send William Evarts to the United States Senate, his candidacy was opposed by Mr. l?latt, who forced Mr. Morton into the contest against hi'i; when Warnef Miller'K term as senator expired and he, by tho usages of his party, was entitled to re-election, Mr. Platt again made Mr. Morton a candidate and succeeded in defeating Mr. Miller by finally throwing the Morton votes to Mr. Hiscock. • Mr. Morton's nomination to the vice presidency Traa secured for him by Mr. Platt, who controlled the New York delegation. And noto this same very respectable and venerable gentleman, at the age of 71 yean, was selected by Mr. Platt mouths before the Republican convention convened as his candidate for governor. Severely Condemn* the A. P. A, "I condemned in my speech at Sara-, toga and I condemn here, also that un- American spirit which ie insidnously fastening itaelf upon portions of our communities, which seeks to set up a religious test as one of the qualifications «for public office of this country. Any organization, secret or otherwise, which has this object in view deserves the execration of every good citizen. It is useless to deny the fact sympathy for this intolerant'spirit has found much support in Republican circles. Ibe recent &e- pnblican state convention, although urgently requested to do so, deliberately refused to incorporate any* provisions in its platfbrm condemning such an un- American policy of intolerance. In the national constitution which our fathers framed it was wisely provided thai too religions test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trait nnder the United States.' This proposition reflected the wisdom of our early statesmen, illustrated their liberal spMt and showed their true patriotism.. Pralie* the New Tariff la*. "The Democratic party in 1898 took charge of the government under unfavorable and adverse circumstances. Wttb a slender majority in the senate and an unwieldy majority in the house, it is not to be wondered that the measure BOW submitted to the judgment of the coon- try does not in all respects meet the public expectations. It is, however, a vast improvement over the McKimler law and recognizes, in part at least, (he Democratic doctrine of frae raw materials, and has appropriately provided for free raw wool, free lumber and free nit. It has reduced the duty on coal and ixaa nearly OU per cent. The general average | reduction from the MoKinley rates is nearly H3 1-3 per cent. The elimination of sugar bounties saves to the American people nearly |18,0o0,00ti annually. Every man, despite the Republican statements to the contary, should understand that another general or extensive tariff revision is not contemplated by the Democrats now or in the future. Will Treat All Faction* Alike, "I believe in honest government in national, state, city and town, and I have no sympathy with fraud or corruption anywhere. I pledge my best effort to uproot rascality wherever it may exist in our state and to puuish the offenders wherever found. If the nomination which I have reluctantly accepted under circumstances with which you are familiar, shall be ratified by the people. I shall assume that office under no oWlga- tlou to any ring, machine or political clique and free from uny muungling alliance whatever and with the sole desire to discharge my duty to the whole people according to the beat of my ability. To party friends, I have only to say the party differences shall be forgotten aud that all interests, all sections and fao- tioua shall bo treated fairly aud alike, With Malice Toward None. "I regret that certain very estimable gentlemen in New York and Brooklyn have announced their unwillingness to give me their support at the election and express a desire to advocate a third - tic'.cot. With 'malice toward none, and i with charity to all," with no words of j cunsuro or complaint, I leave them to discharge their duty to their country and their party according to their conscience. I do only miggoet nnd hope that if they ciinnot consistently sue their way clear to give me their support, that they will loyally support my honorable associates upon this ticket—Daniel M.

Professor Leyden persists in his rather favorable diagnosis of the czar's case and he fully believes that it' it is left entirely in his hands he will he able to effect a cure. The czar ia incessantly worried; first, about the plainly approaching death of his eon, George, and secondly, the conduct of the czarovitch, who stubbornly refuses to inarry Princess Alix. The Russians assign the, refusal to the great love of the czarevitch for his mistress, a most beautiful Jewess, who seems to have such a hold on him that for the sake of keeping her he has offered to renounce his right of succession to the throne. At the same time, the czar fears for the welfare of Russia ana, perhaps, far the peace of Europe, if a regency is necessary. These worries, Professor Leyden asserts, constitute the greatest feature of the czar'i caM. Territory Belong* to Mexico.

The murdered man was deeply involved in litigation and Mrs. Sayres says that a man named Burns had called at the house several times, but her husband was out each time.
